    Kind of interesting descriptions; Hedgehog and a Pipe Cleaner. Hmmm.
    Guess I'd go with the Pipe Cleaner.
    Can't tell you how many hours I spent straightening out those cooling wires. Maybe it helped cool it, but since you can barely see the thing, probably wasn't worth the trouble. (Looked good though.)

    Sounds like someone wants to make a cooler for a MK 2 Tiger. I've seen that done. I've never heard the series 5 cooler called a "Hedgehog". That's a unique description considering the spines of the cooler and the hedgehog also has spines..
